Great atmosphere. Great service. Delicious food. Definitely a great choice for Mexican food. I've eaten here many times and I've never been disappointed. The only problem is filling upon the delicious chips and salsa before the meal comes.

Salsalitos is a great place for good Mexican food. Or maybe you'd call it Tex-Mex. Anyway, it's really good food, and great chips and salsa. It's mild enough that I can take my family (from the east coast) there, but not so mild that we don't enjoy it! I'd recommend it to anyone!

incredible Mexican flavors! I like what I got and I like it even better if I go back for something more profligate than the last meal, the flavors that their meals have are just too authentic, best Mexican meal ever.

I am tired of working hard for my money and then going to restaurants with bad service. My waitress was busy holding up a pillar in the building. I guess she was afraid it was going to fall on her. Did not get asked if I needed anything else until she came over with bill in hand and she didn't know how to make change. I work hard for my money and she needs to work hard for her money. Salsalitos needs to work on their customer service. In the hard economic times ahead people are going to think twice before going out. If it's a choice between staying home or going out to bad service I think more people will be staying home.

I waiting about 10 mins for my table, and from there the service was very good. The food came out steaming HOT HOT HOT, and drinks were always filled. Our waitress was GREAT!

Pros: Nice part of San Antonio.

Cons: Could have more seats while waiting for a table.

There are not many smiliar restaurants located near Salsalito and that is probably why so many people go there to eat when they are craving mexican food! For those that do not like the "tomato paste" salsa, be brave and try one of the many other salsas such as green, roasted, or warm- they are less "pureed." And for those of you that are judging the food off of the enchiladas.. remember that they are simply beed or chz rolled up in a tortilla with meat sauce. nothing too special about that. why not try something more original like the house specialty- fajitas, or maybe one the huge chimichangas! When it comes to margaritas, you are getting what you pay for. $5 might get you a cheap house margarita made with cheap cordoniz tequila but spring for a top shelf for the extra 2 dollars! let's not be too critical of Salsalito. It is my favorite restaurant.. I go there regularly and the staff even knows my name and treats me like a friend. I suggest the pollo cilantro or the salsalito camerones (bacon wrapped shrimp) And if these bad reviews are scaring you away from this place, try it for yourself. I'm pretty sure 98% of the customers are return customers, Also, you can get anything from the menu togo including the monday night fajita special!

I truly don't know how Salsalito got to be number 4 on Best Mexican Food. I thought San Antonians have better taste than this! Chips & Salsa are horrible, the salsa tastes like ketchup. The Margaritas are awful also, I do not know how they make them but if they went to the store and bought one of those buckets you stick in the freezer that would be WAY better than what they serve here. I live right around the corner and haven't been back since 2004. Also they are overly crowded with long waits, but I am not sure why! I guess no one wants to drive somewhere better.

The food is not that great, the price too high, and the service below par. I was raised by grandparents who owned a restqaurant, I would not take anyone to this place.

Not too expensive and in an easy location, Salsalitos has become one of my favorite places in town to eat. The service is great and I think that the salsa is great as well. Another had called it below average but just goes to show you food is all about perception and your personal tastes. And the chips are ALWAYS fresh and toasty!!! Food is wonderful and there is plenty to eat ....meaning, come hungry becasue they DO NOT chince on portions!!!! Enjoy...I always do!!!

I read the other reviews and while the salsa is somewhat below average, everything else is wonderful! Basically it's a mid level restaurant with plenty of choices, very good Cuervo margaritas and good service! I have been at least 3 times and it's always a pleasure. Despite the busy dinner rush, I have never experienced a wait. I would recommend this place to anyone who it looking for good, quality Mexican food.

I have eaten the best and the worst of Mexican food. The review for Salsalitos Mexican Restaurant indicated a highly favored rating, so I decided to try it. I consider the enchilada platter to always be a safe bet, as well as a good dish by which to judge the ovarall quality of the food. The chips, tortillas, and refried beans were bland. The salsa was tasty, but was over-processed to a puree consistency (as were the refried beans). The enchiladas were o.k., but that's all. Overall, it was a big disappointment. It was noisy, as well. The bar looked like it might be o.k., but I didn't have an alcoholic beverage. I feel that I would have done better at Taco Cabana or Taco Bell! My advice - don't waste your money there, and for goodness' sake, don't embarrass yourself by taking a date or business associate there.

First, I have to say that the food was pretty good. My pescado salsalito was magnificent, and I would go back again and again just to eat this one dish, BUT...the beans, guacamole, and salsa are below average. I think the premade canned stuff tastes better than their's did. For the price you pay, I think that everything should be good. The service wasn't that great either. My water glass got filled maybe once, and that is because I had to ask to get it refilled the only time he came to our table to check on us before bringing out the food. My total bill was approx. $20 and that was for one entree and fried ice cream(which wasn't great either) and no drink except for water(free). I think it was a little steep in the price area considering that this restaurant is comparible to an El Chico.

Pros: pescado salsalito-YUM, no waiting for tables

Cons: , guacamole and salsa, beans(yucky paste)

The Scene
Clean, with shiny tile floors and tablecloths, Salsalitos isn't the type of place most locals would go to for a Tex-Mex fix. But the menu offers dishes like enchiladas served with various sauces, chili relleno stuffed…
